Are You KIDDING Me With This???

Apparently, Karma Has Caught Up To Me

I am going to say this as calmly as I can, because I know that if I am not deliberate about it, I will completely lose my mind: My. Air. Conditioner. Is. Broken. Oh dear. I think I'm going to hyperventilate now.

Depending on which weather authority you believe, the temperature outside ranges between 101 degrees and 104 degrees. But in my house, there is no doubt: it is 89 degrees and climbing. I would like to think that the fine gentleman who is currently on his way to my home to poke around at the inner workings of my air conditioner will be able to quickly ascertain the problem with it and fix it post haste. However, I am considerably more practical (not to mention realistic) and therefore I am sure that after poking around the inner workings of my air conditioner, the fine gentleman sent by the repair company will instead tell me that I need a brand spanking new air conditioner and/or some part that is obscure and will need to be back-ordered. In other words, I completely expect to be told that optimal living conditions will not be restored for at least a week. GAH!

If anyone needs me, I will be in the corner, alternately whimpering and mumbling crazed prayers to the ice cream gods.

1. if you have a basement, go there.
2. if you have a fan (preferably more than 1) use it.
3. if you have a life...forget about having a life in temperatures like that. i mean, really, who can reasonably expect anyone to function in those temperatures...oh, right, you have a toddler...

Hi dykewife! (*waves like a loon*)

1. Not many basements in AZ, and certainly none in our neighborhood. We have a pool, instead.

2. Many fans in the house, but they were all on high and it was still 89 degrees and climbing. *sigh*

3. No life. Although the toddler tried to get me to play with him and was not dissuaded by my whining complaints that "it's too hot!" Luckily, the a/c tech walking in and out of my house proved a decent distraction.

End result? My a/c was fixed relatively quickly. It needed a new charge and a coil cleaning. Decent temperatures were restored in a few hours. Yay!
